Arkansas Death Records

Death is never an easy topic and quite often it is a sensitive one. When it comes to genealogical researchers, death records are one of the most important aspects of a person's life. Death certificates can greatly help in the making of a family tree as it provides names, dates, locations and possible information on additional relatives. There are different laws that will govern your search for death records. Arkansas has death records dating back to 1914. Some older records exist as well as far back as 1881. These death records are held by the Department of Health in the Vital Records Office. In addition, the Arkansas History Commission keeps a list of the names of the deceased from 1914-1949, but does not have actual death records. Many investigators realize that the information superhighway of the internet contains many record-finding-websites dedicated to this form of information expedition. Not only do you save time and money as you are not required to travel to various institutes all over the state, the search method itself is greatly expedited.
